The Beach Bach is located right on the beach on a sheep and cattle farm, facing East across Awaawaroa Bay, on Waiheke Island. The property feels quite remote but it is only 5 minutes drive through the Whakanewha Regional Park to a world- class vineyard restaurant, 10 minutes to a supermarket, 15 minutes drive to an excellent delicatessen and about 20 minutes drive to the main village on the Island. Awaawaroa is one of the larger bays on the island but consists of only half a dozen waterfront properties, none of which are within shouting distance of the cottage. This is the perfect place to escape to and soak up the tranquillity and peace in a little piece of paradise.
The Beach Bach is based on a farm, far from the madding crowd.
We can pick you up from the ferry when you arrive and drop you off when you leave if you wish. You may like to take advantage of the complimentary use of the RAV 4 all-wheel-drive (conditions apply).
